The annual show draws together 500 international brands across 91 showrooms in the Design Centre, plus surrounding King’s Road Chelsea locations. 

This season there appears to be a slightly wistful feel.  Organisers tell us to expect, ‘Perennials, stripes and silks in  a pretty romantic palette of violet, blossom, and clover.’

Rockwell, who has designed the set of the upcoming Academy Awards, will speak about his design approach at a keynote. He is also working with Jim Thompson on a new product range which can be seen at the show.

    I hear that as well as some great new designs – Zimmer & Rhode have some hot new books off the press to give away. Maybe worth a look.
